Residents on the West Coast Should Monitor Hurricane Jeanne

As of 11:00 A.M. Saturday, September 25, 2004, Hurricane Jeanne’s storm track has moved to the West. Hurricane Jeanne is now a Category 3 storm. A hurricane watch has been issued for the West coast of Florida from Englewood (Sarasota County) to the Suwannee River (Levy County). A tropical storm warning is now in effect from East Cape Sable (Monroe County) Northward to the Suwannee River.

All Gulf coast residents should continue to monitor National Weather Service forecasts and heed local official warnings for evacuations, flood warnings, high wind warnings, and severe thunderstorm or tornado warnings.

FLORIDIANS NEED TO PREPARE NOW -- All Floridians are encouraged to check their disaster preparedness kits to make sure they have enough supplies to last at least 72 hours after impact. Supplies should include bottled water, canned food and batteries, as well as, a 30 day supply of prescription medications. Residents should also fill their gas tanks in preparation.
